Pet Rock is a collectible toy made in 1975 by advertising executive Gary Dahl. Pet Rocks are smooth stones from Mexico's Rosarito Beach. They were marketed like live pets, in custom cardboard boxes, complete with straw and breathing holes. The fad lasted about six months, ending after a short increase in sales during the Christmas season of December 1975. Although by February 1976 they were discounted due to lower sales, Dahl sold over 1 million Pet Rocks for $4 each and became a millionaire.

A must read for any pet rock owner
I remember that the joke originated in those who expressed discomfort in caring for animal pets, such as having to feed them, take them for a walk, take care of hygiene or attend to any illnesses. Then someone said: If any of that bothers you, you should have a rock instead!
Gary Dahl was truly a genius. He made the Tamagotchi before the Tamagotchi.

I am a better person now
Up until now, my life has been empty and void. I did not know that I lacked something in my life, but there it was: I now understand that a pet rock brings a level of fullfilment I could not have achieved otherwise. And than to think that I was only four years old when this guide was first published!

The Best Manual on the Subject
I still have that Manual, which came with my pet rock, a Christmas present in the mid-70s. My rock has been a constant, faithful companion for almost 50 years, never straying from my study or misbehaving. It's as healthy as the day it arrived, which I ascribe to following the manual's instructions and recommendations to the letter. Recommended.

Even if you believe your pet is in good health, you should bring them in for an annual checkup with a licence vet. This can be a preventive measure because annual exams help to preserve your pet's health and lower the danger of developing severe or life-threatening illnesses or infections, which can be very expensive for you. These days, online platforms like PetCareRx or applications make it simple for pet parents to discover vets on time if you have trouble getting to one.
